Enhanced Metafile (EMF) is a graphics file format used for print, display on Windows Operating System. Compared with 16-bit Windows Metafile (WMF) format, 32-bit EMF is an enhanced version containing more information to provide better drawing precision. Both EMF and WMF are standard formats for scalable graphics in many Windows applications. Unfortunately, you'll have to convert them to other formats, e.g. PDF, so that you can use them across different platforms or applications.
Portable Document Format (PDF), an open standard for information exchange, is recognized by industries and organizations around the world. PDF is one of the most popular file format. It's hard to say how much information is distributed and got from PDF nowadays.
The PDF format has been a success because of its advantages:
1. Portable: Not only because of its small file size, but also the capability of self-contained, it's easy to transmit files between computers and various applications without worrying about the communication problem caused by different looks of the original sources on different screens.
2. Secure: Editing PDF files is difficult. In the circle of passing on from one person to another, the files can't be revised easily, you can also add signatures and watermarks to PDF files.
3. Accurate: PDF is just an image of your document, it looks the same on multi-screens and printers.
4. Easily created: since PDF is an open standard, any companies can build their own products to create and read PDF files.
